What is this horse doing this for???
Sorry, but I can't help but laugh at the utter silliness of this. But why is he doing it? Is it because he's nervous or bored?

I don't know why he is doing it but I have seen horses at work do it just because they are really bored.

Probably because he is bored. However, it looks like he is biting his tongue pretty hard. If so, he may be forcing an endorphin release....kinda getting a high from it. The same result horses get from cribbing.

Probably because he's bored, or like Allison mentioned he may be getting an endorphin release from it.
I find it rather amusing, but if it became an issue where the horse was putting its health at risk I'd probably try to find a way to keep the horse amused. Plenty of hay, toys in the stall or in the paddock, a pet goat...

Well it looks like it has a next door neighbor @ 16 sec on the clip.

Kind of looks like he has dewormer on his lips. Wonder if he is just annoyed by the "icky" taste?

I think your right Sahara...it looks like dewormer or something.

Could be a stress reliever from living in a stall (cage).

Sometimes my tongue gets itchy and I drag it along my teeth to scratch it. Could this horse be "scratchy" and itchy tongue?

My best friends mom used to have a barrel horse that would stick his tongue out the side of his mouth the entire run:P
